. Naval . .Constructor Prentiss Young
after finishing his course at Annapolis
was stationed for several years at the
Bethlehem Iron works. There he ex
perimented with armor plate and per
cussion shells till he knew the process
es of manufacturing the toughest plate
and the most penetrating shell. Young
applied himself so diligently that his
health began to give way, and, secur
ing a year's leave, he went abroad.
One morning while rowing on the
Bosporus he met a handsomely cano
pied boat, pulled by four eunuchs, bear
ing a Turkish lady evidently of high
rank. He stared at her, but as her face
was covered he could see no feature
but her eyes. Young was a handsome
fellow and was at the time in the uni
form of his rank. The eyes of the lady
were bent upon him and, he fancied,
admiringly. However this may be, the
same evening while walking on the
street a man accosted him in bad Eng
lish, informing him that a lady who
had seen him that day desired to make
his acquaintance. Such an adventure
suited the officer exactly, and he fol
lowed the man, who led him to a pri
vate entrance to the sultan's seraglio.
After dodging through secret passages,
Young suddenly stepped into a luxuri
ously furnished apartment, " in which
on a divan sat a very pretty Turkish
woman. Of course she was the woman
he had met on the river.
That was the year of the earthquake"
in Turkey ISO, I thins. As Young
was advancing, the lady holding out
her band to him, there were a rumbling
and a rocking which loosened the floor
ing and let the sinful couple down into
the apartment below. This was not
all. The sultan was at the time visit
ing bis favorite wife in this very apart
ment into which they fell, and the
sight that greeted his eyes 'after brush
ing off the plaster was Lieutenant
Young, with one of his sultanas cling
ing to him in terror.
Of course this meant death for both
the sinners, and this story would end
right here had not the sultan recog
nized Young as an American officer.
Not that that deterred the autocrat
from applying the customary laws, but
he was at that time much impressed
with the skill displayed In America in
military and naval science, and it oc
curred to him that lie might get some
information. He asked the transgressor
several questions, and when he learned
of his peculiar experience his eyes
gleamed with satisfaction.
"Go Into the government works," he
said, "and make me a plate armor that
no shell can penetrate and a shell that
no armor can resist. If you do this, you
"Tharwould be impossible, your maj
esty, but I will make you an armor
that no shell; except one you possess
can penetrate, and that shell will pene
trate any armor. But as nn officer of
the United States navy it would be un
becoming of me to save my life and
leave a woman to punishment."
"Very well," said the sultan. "I con
sent. I have never seen this woman
before, though she may have been in
my harem for months. I do not even
know her name. If you succeed, I will
give her to you."
In a few weeks came the trial at the
works in the sultan's presence. Young
set up bis plate and challenged the
Turkish officers present to pierce it.
With most of their projectiles they on
ly dented It. The best they could do
was to get into It about two inches.
"Are you satisfied, . your majesty,"
asked Young, "that there is no shell
made that can pierce that plate?"
The sultan consulted with his super
intendent of the works, an English
man, and then told Young that he was
"Very well, your, majesty; I will now
load the gun myself, but I ask your
majesty to withdraw every one to a
distance while I insert the projectile
in order that your majesty alone may
possess the secret, which I will trans
mit to you after the experiment."
To this the sultan assented. Then
Young surprised them all by taking up
a shell of the kind they had been
using, but before putting it Into the
gun it was observed that lie took some
thing from his vest pocket. When all
was ready, Young fired the shell, "Which
penetrated the plate, .tearing away the
backing.,, The shell was found to be
uninjured. . .The sultan examined it
greedily,, then looked up in amazement.
There was nothing on it different from
any other shell, nd no mark to indicate
that anything had beep attached. The
next shot was fired at an angle of
twenty degrees. . It pierced both plate
and backing and struck the wall inclos
ing the works, 500 feet away. The sul
tan and all the oflicers' present held up
their hands in astonishment
"Tell me at once," cried the sultan,
"this wonderf ul secret!"
Then Young took a cap and fixed it
to the point ot a shell. It was held
there by magnetism. It wpj a combi
nation of- metals which protected the
shell's point till it had passed the hard
surface of the plate and reached the
softer metal at the back.
The sultan clapped his hands, and
eunuchs appeared, leading the lady
who Invited Young to her apartments.
He gallantly crooked his arm and'led
her out of the works amid the plaudits
of the assembled throng.
That evening an envoy came from
the sultan's palace bearing a bag of
gold for a dowry. This was a much
more sensible way of settling the mat
ter than drowning the woman in the
Bosporus, as was the law. , The sultan
gained a valuable secret and got rid of
an unfaithful wife.

Among the famous men of Vicksburg
before the war, one of the most promi
nent was a Mr. McNutt. Two Qualities
The first was bis personal cowardice.!
Still more individual was his power of'
setting aside in his own .favor those
prejudices of the .public mind which
would have -crushed any other man.'
He was at one time a candidate : for
United States senator. The opposing
candidate was General Quitman . In a'
speech McNntt said: "Fellow citizens,
I understand that General. Quitman is
now in the eastern counties reviewing
his militia, and that , he says when he
meets me he intends to whip me. Now
I tell him at this faroff distance that if
he whips me it will be because be can
outrun me; for I have a great horror,
for the barbarous practice of personal1
violence." . .
Such a speech from any, other mam
would have won him the contempt-of
his: listeners, but it was McNutt. .and?

than a mere pistol shot, possibly partly
owing to the greater rarity of the air,

no background to reflect it, simply
spends itself in the air. Then, always

Archbishop Crokc'i Athleticism.

lie was nn active promoter and patron
of the revival of the old Gaelic games

he had some confidence in his phj-sical
powers. About that time mention was
made in conversation of the remarka
ble pedestrian abilities of Cardinal
Gibbons, archbishop of Baltimore, who
could give points in walking to the
youngest and most active of his
curates. ' "Well," said Archbishop
Croke, "let him come here, and I'll
make a match with him."

The Coming of a Doctor to Locate
Permanently in a town has no half-way significance upon tbe suffering hu
manity of a city either he is going to benefit them greatly or just the re
verse. When Dr. Horne announced intention through the columns of this
paper of permanently locating here, naturally all thinking people wanted
to know all about him. His advertisements were bold, startling-, but convincing-;
the testimonials were signed by the most reputable citizens.
People commenced to investigate, and visited his offices, and the most
convincing and pathetic scenes were seen in and around their reception
rooms. People who had lcen suffering with rheumatism, lame back and
sciatica for years were being- cured by a method that is as skillful, pain
less and quick as it is wonderful. Just think of a man who could hardly
walk for years, all crippled up with rheumatism, after taking one of his
treatments, dancing' around the room with joy. People deaf for several
years had their hearing- restored, and were, one and all, anxious that their
names should be given to the public, so that others might be cured.

complishing with his new- methods, and all patients say how much he is do
ing for them. He has extended his liberal offer of free TKKATMKXT for
